Squarehue - April 2013

Recommended Posts

I just painted my nails with the yellow, and it's actually one of the better yellows I have tried! It's still not a great formula compared to other polishes on general, but it's great compared to, say, my bottle of Sinful Colors Unicorn. And it's a beautiful daffodil yellow, so I will just deal with the other issues (a lot of my issues would probably go away if I ever got around to picking up a ridge filler, though. I should add that to my shopping list).

I'm on day 4 and I only have minimal tip wear. This formula is amazing! Such a breath of fresh air from how Juleps formula has been performing for me lately.

I'm still wearing my Monday yellow submarine nails, and same here! I am usually super hard on my nails, and this is almost unheard of for me. And the longer I wear this color, the more I like it. Once again, the color I was most meh about is a hit. I will probably be changing colors tonight solely because I need something to go with _Evil Dead_ tomorrow. I'm just not sure what that will be.

Yellow formulas are always horrible or so it seems.

 

I am loving these this month. To be honest I was considering cancelling them but this month's box made me stay.

I really like the purple one. It's a nice lavender color.

The tips of mine are wearing off and I think this is day 4. But otherwise, I really like how it looks!

The only thing keeping me in is that I got the $15 rate when they still had it going on. I'm thisclose to cxling though.

Aww this makes me sad cuz I just signed up last month. I've been impressed with the staying power of their formula and I like being surprised. I have this and julep....so, one of them has to go ($40/mo in polish is too much for me). I'm gonna try SH exclusively for a few months before deciding which one gets the ax.

Definitely try it out! I just haven't used a single one of their polishes for a mani at all. I have 12 polishes from them.. so that's saying a lot. I kind of want to stay because I know come June or July, they'll add some gorgeous new summer colors and I'll kick myself if I leave because I'm not signing up again if I do.

I keep waiting for Julep to give me *something* that I like well enough to not skip a month, but I keep waiting.  I think the last time I got a Maven box was the suedes.  When was that, September?  And I keep looking at the Juleps I already have, think, "Ugh, those *bottles*! I don't feel like dealing with those tippy things tonight," and use something else -- and that "something else" is Square Hue more and more often.  And I only wear a month's colors during that month (*so* looking forward to January so my OCD will allow me to break out the Arctic Collection again!), but it's still worth the fifteen bucks a month for me.  Well, okay, the February box was a bit of a bust for me (I'm not big on pinks and roses), but pretty much every other box has made up for it, so I feel like I'm coming out ahead on this subscription.

 

And on the specific topic of the April box, NO STAINING WITH THE GREEN?  ARE YOU SERIOUS, SQUARE HUE?  I was very nervous about that one after my misadventures with Julep's Leah (a similarly bright green), but I had no problems whatsoever, which I should have expected after also not having any staining with the yellow.  I think this is my favorite collection so far.  Even my least-favorite shade in this collection (the purple) is one of my favorite shades in my overall collection.  They really hit it out of the park on this one for me.

As much as I like SquareHue I think I may have to suspend my account before May 1st (since I've already paid for the May box). Reason: Budget. Even though it's $14.99 a month I can use that $15 on something else.

Yeah, all the colors in a box are gonna have to wow me for me not to skip. No more justifying it by saying "well I like 'x' color...and 'y' not be bad..." I'm glad the green didn't give you any staining! That was so strange! That green is next on my list to try. Hopefully I'll find time tomorrow cuz my kids are home on vacation this week & I just bought chickens...my nails will probably take a backseat this week!

Exactly. Same situation here... I wanted to try panty fly ($15/3months) so it's like hmmm. SH or PF? Leaning towards PF but I haven't cxl'd my SH yet. =/

    • Last Wednesday, the night before payday, I began to get interested in doing a project use it up and trying to pay off my debts. It's a never ending life's work I am always trying to accomplish.  Since then I've been developing a new plan for myself. I paid $20.00 on my smallest credit card, which brought the balance down to $100.00. I started using up some foil pack samples that I had already opened.  I came up with a plan to do a snowball plan for my debts. I'm not going to impose a deadline for paying them off. (Will pay the debts off one at a time, from smallest to largest.) At the same time I will have snowball plan for using up my beauty products. I'll organize them based on size in ounces, and use them up one at a time, from smallest to largest. I've started using my foil pack hair masques, cleansers, eye creams. I've got my shower gels and cleansers organized by ounces from smallest to largest. This is fun to do, and it really simplifies things. I'm going to make a workbook for myself.  I'm excited to get into the new plan!  First goal - pay off smallest credit card - $100.00. Use up foil pack hair masque, eye cream, cleanser, scrub, shower gel, eye masque. 
    • I love that many of the fragrances here have an imposing character of their own, yet undoubtedly bring out the best in a woman, and still hypnotize the majority of men around every single time!
    • just visited ur blog! keep up the good writing! we need more authentic beauty bloggers rather than just instagram photos.
    • I love camping a lot! i camp on the great outdoor to relax and chill whenever i had too much work stress. (which is quite common)
    • whats that? A beauty?
